Most tourists take Delhi only as an arrival and departure place before their travels around India and stay here only the shortest possible time. But it is possible to find here a wide range of beautiful sights, especially from the Mughal era. Most attractions are located within 10 km from the old city center and as such are the best accessible by taxi.
